I noticed yesterday, as I was about to pack my Lamy 2000 up for a trade, that a crack had developed near the nib section. This is well-documented to have happened before, generally in the same section of the pen.

Here is the crack in my pen.

I sent it back to Lamy c/o Filofax yesterday.

Any idea on the turnaround time for them to send it back to me? Should I expect a new pen?

I sent two older Lamy 2000s to them last summer for general maintenance and the turnaround was about two weeks. Don't expect a new pen. The piece that cracked screws off of the barrel, and that's what they'll replace. You should probably see it returned with the same body and nib/feed unit.

Mine took exactly 2 weeks the first time I sent it in, and 17 days the second. The first time, they replaced just the front section, the second the whole pen (but not the cap).

Did you receive any notification from Lamy that they received the pen or what they are going to do to it? Or, did you just blindly receive it back in the mail two weeks later?
